If you have been reading my previous posts then it should come as no surprise to see Transformers here again. Today we have a Transformers Alt-Modes series 1 mystery figure. I said it was a “blind-ish” box because there is a hole in the box so you can try and see which character it is – I didn’t look!
Its been a while but this time I got lucky!
All hail the mighty Megatron! – Honestly, this would be my first pick to get out of this alt-modes line so I am really pleased to get him first time! Classic Megatron is brilliant. I remember as a child asking my dad “Dad, who is more evil – Darth Vader, Megatron or the devil?” Haha, that is how much of a badass Megatron is.
Transformers Alt-Modes Megatron
The figure is quite nice if a little basic in paint application (although Megatron was always a bit sparse). True to the ‘Alt-Mode’ name the figure does actually transform. To ‘transform’ the figure there is a tab in the shape of a decepticon emblem of the figures head which just needs to be pulled. When the tab is pulled a body fall down from inside the head. With each pull of the tab it cycles between robot mode and tank mode.
I bought this figure from Toys R Us in Hat Yai and they are quite expensive for what they are. It cost me 250 baht which is approximately £5/6 at the time of writing. Based on the price I can’t really recommend this line unless you can get hold of it cheaper. If you consider the fact you could get a real nice Kid Robot vinyl figure or something for around the same price it doesn’t really seem worth it.
The other characters available in series 1 are;
- Optimus Prime
- Nemesis Prime
- Ultra Magnus
If any of those character interest you then maybe think about picking one up next time you see one!
